Learn about population ecology on Lizard Island. Our game on Populations will teach players about how different types of reproduction can affect population sizes.
Lizard Island – Populations: We hear about population problems all the time… human populations are high and certain animal populations are too low. But how does population growth work? Have your calculators handy as you explore the world of populations and find out some of the things that control population size.
